ALLENSPARK, Colo. (AP) — A man shot and killed while camping in Boulder County has been identified.

David Munoz-Tarin, 24, of Denver, died in Allenspark on Monday following the incident at Olive Ridge Campground.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Oehlkers said the shooting occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Monday at a campground in the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest near Allenspark.

The site is about 20 miles northwest of Boulder.

Oehlkers declined to say whether the wound was self-inflicted or to identify the type of gun.

No one has been arrested and no one else was hurt.

Oehlkers said Munoz-Tarin was shot in the face. An autopsy has been completed but cause and manner of death are pending further investigation.

Oehlkers says more than a dozen people were in the victim’s group. Some were drinking but Oehlkers didn’t know if Munoz-Tarin was.

Investigators are interviewing other campers.
